‘Red Force’ coach confident in bowlers

COACH OF the Trinidad and Tobago cricket team David Williams is pleased with the performances of the bowlers during the 2013 Regional Four Day Tournament and is banking on them to continue to do well as preparations continue for their semifinal vs Jamaica on May 2.

The batsmen have come up for a lot of stick due to poor form, with discarded West Indies opener Adrian Barath paying the price for low scores as he was dropped for the game away to Jamaica at Sabina Park, Jamaica.

Teenaged left-handed opener Jeremy Solozano has been called up for the first time at the First-Class level.

But the bowling attack, including pacers Shannon Gabriel, Marlon Richards and Rayad Emrit, as well as leg-spinners Yannic Cariah and Imran Khan, have come up for high praise by the former TT and WI wicket-keeper.

Uncapped left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein and the inconsistent off- spinner Amit Jaggernauth are the other specialist slow-bowlers in the 13-member national squad.

In an interview yesterday, Williams said, “we have no problem with the way our bowlers have gone about their business. They have done extremely well for us and put us in very good positions and even won games for us.

“These guys have continued to work hard on their game and we have no concerns,” continued the 49-year-old. “The bowlers have been doing their bit though they can get better as time goes on.

“The bowlers have been doing their work and will continue to do their work. We continue to expect good things from them.”

Concerning the training sessions, Williams noted, “we had two solid days, one (on Wednesday) and one (on Thursday), at the Queen’s Park Oval.”

Asked about Solozano’s form in training, Williams admitted that he has done “very well”.

The coach continued, “he’s not very new to us because we know him to a degree, with the Under-17 and Under-19. We know the talent that he possesses. He looked very good in the two practices that we had. He batted in the middle and he looked very promising.”

Williams stated, “we don’t want to put too much on him. He’s a young player and we don’t want the media to keep hyping him up. He just wants to go out there and play his game, and be under no pressure.

“So the least we can say about him , that will be the best for him, and we’ll just leave it as that,” he added. “(We’ll) let Solozano go and prove what he can do, as a youngster. It is a learning experience for him. It’s one for the future.

“We expect him to do well. He’s very young and inexperienced. He is a very positive guy. We think he’s going to do well.”

Williams noted that the team will leave for Jamaica on Tuesday and will have one practice session on Wednesday before the game begins on Thursday.
